If we are healthy and wise… and inspired, the chances of a micro business success grows.  Plus work that is inspiring isn’t really work… but a labor of love instead.

That is why Merri and I love our business. We find inspiration, see that our time and efforts do make a difference, when we receive notes like this from our readers.


Hello Gary and Merri, We took two of your courses with our daughters who participated in your import/export course last year.

I wanted to share something amazing with you, and as well express my sincere gratitude for your insightful and inspiring writing.  I don’t always get time to read each of your daily emails but always try to scan through them on the Sunday review. Two weeks ago, as I was quickly reading the Photodermie article and the lymph drainage caught my eye.  Having a very rare heriditary blood dis-order which led to the death of my mother and sister, I have become pro-active in searching for new ideas and thoughts on prevention and well being.  I googled the Phyto 5 web site only to discover that the only distributor for Canada is 2 hours from our home and has been the sole distributor for the products in Canada for 27 years.  I immediately called her and she arranged to meet me at one of her clinics with her most trusted technician.  When I arrived on Saturday she shared with me that she had spent much time discussing my issues with the founder and biochemist in Switzerland.  She was curious how I heard about the products, and when I told her, she knew you and had been at Land of the Sun 10 years ago!  So amazing!

To make a long story short, Artlett with the help of the bio chemist were able to tell me more about my condition based on the “alternative practices” and establish a treatment plan.  I took the drainage with the machine and used the products and as you said, it felt up lifting.  I learned more in one afternoon than I had been able to discover in two years of searching through the traditional methods.  I finally feel like I am getting some answers, and so I say thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Another exciting thought, they asked if I would be interested in training with the product line and establishing a clinic in our area.
Not sure if I will pursue this option now, but always nice to have options.

Peace and grace to you both.

Here are two ideas that can help you have a micro business success.


Phytobiodermie Products

Micro Business Idea #1:  Try out phytobiodermie for better balance and health. Take advantage of  the quantum aspects of tactile balancing for frequency modulation. See more here.

Micro Business Idea #2:  Try out phytobiodermie for global income. Merri and I have our own phytodrmie lymph drainage instruments and have encouraged several people to learn how to use this because it can provide a global income.

“Masstige” is a good example of a business that booms during depressed times.   An excerpt from the November 23, 2011 USA Today front page article entitled “Shoppers focus on quick-fix purchases” by Dennis Cauchon (linked below) says (bolds are mine) :  As the biggest shopping days of the year approach, consumers’ buying habits are shifting dramatically from big-ticket items to less expensive purchases that are enjoyed and consumed quickly, a USA TODAY analysis finds.

Eating out, hair coloring and perfume are in. Cars, appliances and furniture are out.  Consumers are rewarding merchants who entertain them, save them time.

What’s different: People are accumulating less stuff — houses, cars, lamps, clocks. This money was saved early in the economic downturn but is now flowing to services and small items that can immediately boost a person’s happiness.

Typical change: Consumers are spending more on wine, less on wine glasses. Spending on wine is up 14% during the recovery after falling 2% in the recession.

“Wine is considered an affordable luxury,” explains Gladys Horiuchi of the Wine Institute.

How preferences are changing, according to an analysis of Bureau of Economic Analysis spending and income data:

• Quality of life. Americans are spending a greater share of their income on pets and vets, spectator sports and disposable contact lenses — non-essential pleasures and upgrades that don’t cost a fortune. Psychological counseling is also attracting the highest share of income on record.

• Prestige. Beauty products wholesaler Max Wexler calls the buying trend “masstige” — selling low-cost prestige products to the mass market. He’s reinvented his business, Beauty Craft Supply & Equipment of Minnetonka, Minn., to sell upscale hair products that are available only at beauty salons. “Consumers may not be buying the most expensive conditioner, but they’re buying one step down,” he says.

Spending habits are changing, but the love of spending is not. Consumers spent 93.1% of their after-tax income in the third quarter on goods and services, the most since the recession began in December 2007, government data show. Spending accelerated every month during the quarter. Early reports show October retail sales were strong, too. People spend the same share of income as they did during the 2000s and more than during the 1960s, 1970s, 1980s or 1990s.

There you have it. More spending on certain things.  You can prosper in this economic era with a micro business that gets more spending!

We have created a turn key business opportunity for readers to take advantage of Masstige.

One company whose products we have used for decades provides a line of natural health products for purification and longevity.   The company is called Phytobiodermie from Switzerland.

Phytobiodermie will participate in a one day workshops preceding our Super Thinking plus Spanish courses.  See more below.

The company has created two special micro business opportunities for readers.

Phytobiodermie, CEO Jon Canas, sent this note:

Gary,  We can offer your readers retail high quality Swiss made products with 100% mark up worth over $2,000 gross profit.

These selected products target the anti-age market with proven natural ingredients.   We have created two special packages for your readers based around our Anti Aging – Ageless Cure.


The Ageless Cure is composed of two products…  the ageless cream and…


ageless serum.  They work together to create five major aesthetic actions.  This is a luxury anti-aging solution from PHYTO 5™. The synergy of the serum and cream achieve a younger looking and radiant skin from the following actions:

*  Mineralizing

* Wrinkle filling from within

* Hydrating


*Immediate lifting and toning

The delicate fragrance of these 2 products is composed of a precious blend of balancing plant extract and essential oils according to the 5 elements of Chinese Medicine (rose, orange, tangerine, green tea, geranium, vanilla and sandalwood).

Properties and Recommendations:

Very rich in natural anti-aging active molecules, it fills in wrinkles from inside and mineralizes the skin. The extract of commiphora, traditionally used in Ayurvedic medicine, refills wrinkles and tones the skin without the need for injections (botox or hyaluronic acid). Rich in manganese, it consolidates the protection mantel of the skin and mineralizes the skin. The precious essential oils of rose and apricot oil provide hydrating and anti-aging properties.
The 5 Secrets Serum is to be applied, and gently massaged, after cleansing and toning but before the Cream.

Key Ingredients:

•    Commiphora Mukul Extract: well-known in Ayurvedic medicine, this resin is extracted from the root of an Indian tree. This tree is very close to the myrrh tree that was part of the gifts offered by the Queen of Saba to King Salomon. This extract helps fill in wrinkles by increasing the synthesis of lipids. It also tones the skin. This extract is a precursor of a new type of cosmetic products, characterized by an original injection-like mechanism, thanks to deep lifting action.

•    Manganese: this trace mineral provides a significant anti-aging action. It is an antioxidant with soothing properties. It stimulates the anti free radicals defences and slows down aging due to environmental aggressions. It is also involved in the synthesis of vitamin B1. It restructures lipids and regenerates fillagrin that consolidates the protective mantel of the epidermis.

•    Apricot kernel oil: it contains about 90 % of poly unsaturated fatty acids (omega 6 and 9). Very rich in vitamin A and E, it is nourishing, hydrating and has anti-wrinkle properties. It naturally softens and revitalizes the skin. It is particularly recommended for mature, dry or sensitive skin and skin lacking tone.

•    Tara and Acacia Gum: a food grade natural gelling agent, derived from renewable sources, with good film-forming properties. It gives natural gels with a very velvety and non-greasy touch.

•    Witch-Hazel Flower Water: it has astringent, soothing, anti-inflammatory and disinfectant properties. Being rich in tannins, it is also an antioxidant.

•    Rose essential oil: it has revitalizing, healing and purifying properties. It soothes irritations, eczema or redness and is thus recommended for dry and sensitive skin. It gives a sensation of wellbeing and harmony. It tones and regenerates the skin and has anti-wrinkles properties.

Mechanism of action of Commiphora Mukul extract

Commipheroline is extracted from the root of an Indian tree well-known in Ayurvedic medicine: Commiphora mukul. It presents a repulping effect with two main applications: wrinkle filling and breast enlargement.

Skin aging leads to alterations of the skin mechanical properties. The adipose tissue reduction, coupled with the degradation of the extracellular matrix components make the face skin thinner and thinner. Commipheroline helps to maintain the skin tone by acting on two enzymes committed in lipogenesis and in lipolysis chain reactions.


Increase of triglyceride level in adipocyte (in vitro Test)

Triglyceride level in adipocytes increases thanks to G3PDH activation and AMPc production inhibition. Triglyceride level is assayed 11 days after treatment.


By increasing triglyceride level, Commipheroline helps to fill up wrinkles

Learn Spanish in Three Days

Why You Can Learn Spanish in Three Days

You can learn Spanish in a day, or a week, month or any time frame that works for you.

I’m Gary Scott.  Over fifty years ago I started a business that has helped hundreds of thousands of subscribers learn about investing in Hong Kong (1960s and 1970s), Switzerland, London, Isle of Man (1970s and 1980s) and across Europe. My wife Merri and I took thousands on investing tours to these countries.

In the 1990s we began taking investors to Panama, Mexico, the Dominican Republic and Ecuador.  That’s when we realized an incredible need for an easy, super fast way to learn Spanish.  Our delegates were business people with hard schedules and tight deadlines.  They did not have months, or even weeks to learn a second language.

Plus, even though these delegates were successful international business people, most did not have degrees in grammar.  When it came to sentence structure, punctuation rules, parts of speech, morphology and especially derivation of verbs, they were at a loss. They wanted good basic ways to communicate in Spanish that worked and sounded eloquent, right now, without having to become educated in grammar.

Fortunately there is a scientific method of learning (called Super Learning) that was created and refined by a Soviet educational master, Georgi Lozanov.   Lozanov transformed the entire Soviet Union’s educational system to such a degree that this third world nation beat the USA into space.

My wife Merri was lucky to be one of a handful of students outside the Soviet Union who were taught this system by Lozanov himself in the early 1970s.  She practiced this unique and remarkable form of education for decades so we used it to create a Super Spanish course that has helped thousands of subscribers learn Spanish in three days and less.

This course is now available online.


Merri teaching a Super Spanish course in Florida.

Does it sound impossible to learn Spanish in three days?  Yes, it is impossible when you try to learn Spanish in the old, traditional way, but the scientific Super Learning method of learning… proven and described in numerous best selling books creates educational jumps by making education natural, easy and fun.   This course works because it is education without stress!

How The Course Works

The first tactic is to use Baroque music to create Relaxed Concentration in the learning process.  At least three best selling books, “Superlearning”, the “Mozart Effect” and “Superlearning 2000” have revealed insights about how to learn and think more powerfully based on systems drawn from the Soviet educational master, Dr. Georgi Lozanov.

You gain six valuable ONLINE Baroque Relaxed Concentration Sessions in the online course that is delivered via the internet.

The second tactic uses 17 unique lessons to provide Spanish fluency in a short time.   Let me prove to you how this tactic works by teaching you hundreds of Spanish words in less than 30 seconds.

Here is the proof.

“Most words in English that end in ION are almost identical, just pronounced differently. 

For example action is accion.


Manipulation- manipulacion, etc.”

There you have it.  How long did it take you to read these four sentences? 

Ask yourself.  “How many words do you know that end in ION”.

You now know all these Spanish words that you will never forget.

How long would it have taken you to memorize all those words?  How soon would you have forgotten them?

The next lesson teaches how to pronounce each of the nouns.

The third lesson teaches almost as many verbs, almost as quickly.

The fourth lesson shows how to avoid conjugating verbs by sticking with the infinitive (far easier than it sounds).  This simple lesson leaves a person sounding like a Spanish professor without ever conjugating a verb.

Lesson five shows how to sound infinitely polite and yet get almost anything desired in Spanish.

Lesson six gives valuable connectors and the seventh lesson triples the Spanish capacity with three words for “yesterday,” “now” and “tomorrow”.

In an incredibly short time you feel comfortable speaking Spanish.

Plus the system is Impro-Dynamic.  This means your Spanish keeps getting better even though you do not seem to be studying… practicing… or speaking Spanish.

I was amazed by this as I traveled back and forth from the USA to Ecuador.  The longer I was away from Ecuador… the better my Spanish became.  My second language was automatically improving.  The self improving feature comes because you learn to create Spanish sentences rather than remember them.

The portion of the brain that creates is more powerful than the portion that recalls.  When your mind creates something… it owns it!  You do not have to remember .

During the course you learn 4005 Spanish words that you already know.   This eliminates the need to memorize 99% of Spanish words.

You then learn how to create Spanish sentences from these words.

Throughout the course you learn how to pronounce the sentences you create.

When the course ends… the mind keeps working… and creating… so next time you begin to speak Spanish you’ll be surprised .  You improve even though you have not actively worked on your lingual skill.

Due to the difficulty of getting groups together to learn this valuable technique, we created an online program for subscribers to use the Super Spanish course at home.   The normal three day in person course fee is $499 ($749 for a couple).

The ONLINE course is available at the highly reduced price of $149, but in this special offer we are knocking another $70 from the price so you can start now for only $79.  

The ONLINE course has our, full satisfaction or money back, guarantee.  Try Super Spanish for 60 days.  If not fully satisfied, simply let us know for a full refund.

Here are some testimonials from the course.

Here are a few quotes from delegates of the course.

One delegate from St. Louis wrote:  Hi Gary,  Just ended forty-five years in dentistry last week, and I’m on to a new career.  What is my new career?  Still formulating, but the eye -opening,mind expanding Super-Spanish course last weekend in St. Louis surely shows me the opportunity exists to expand my horizons.

Besides having a lot of nice people to learn our new language; the methods Merri and you developed proved to be just what you said they would be.  We all and I in particular relaxed our way to new learning.  I feel so very comfortable with the basis of my new language skills that I know I will be spitting out great Spanish sentences by the time I reach Ecuador in October.  Last year I spent six weeks in Ecuador and now I plan on conversing with the people.

Today’s excerpt of your newsletter really hit home. You do what you say you will. There are no surprises or hidden sales tricks. The only tricks are beneficial to our learning.  Thank you for a wonderful experience that I was quite unable to grasp how you would pull it off.  You did, however, and I look forward to other courses that you offer, and I have absolutely no doubt they also will work beneficially.  Best regards, Denis Molloy.

Another wrote about the Super Spanish course:   Buenos Dias, here is a testimonial for Super Thinking-Super Spanish.  Please feel free to use all or part in promotions for the course.  In addition, you may give my email address to any prospect “on the fence” about enrolling.  Yesterday, in Cotacachi, Ecuador, I finished Super Spanish.  I had high expectations for the course and they were exceeded.

After three days, I can speak Spanish in complete sentences. In simple conversations, such as buying groceries or ordering a meal, I can make myself understood. I think that’s incredible!

Although I am far from the competence level of a native speaker, I feel I’ve taken a giant step forward in learning Spanish so that I can experience the people and culture of Ecuador.  The foregoing benefits would have more than justified the time and money I invested in Super Spanish.  And learning some Spanish was not the most important benefit I got from the course.

Prior to leaving the USA, I had felt for some time that the pace of life there was unhealthy for me (and for most people) and I did nothing about it.

I’ve thought about the pace issue during the course.  One of the key elements Merri Scott designed into Super Spanish is placing the student in the optimal state for learning.  In class, the past three days, I’ve been re-introduced to guided journeys and introduced to the calming effects of Baroque music (www.sundaybaroque.org).  What a blessing! I’m inclined to make one or both a daily part of my life.   Rob Christi.  Cotacachi, Ecuador

Another attendee from a course wrote:   “I took this incredible class a few weeks ago, and I would like to tell anyone that is interested, that it is an amazing three days of learning with lots of laughs included. You leave everyday wanting to learn more and are so excited to do so.

“Other Spanish classes and tutoring made us feel like it would take forever to get to the point where we could put it into practice, but this method gave us a more fluent use for everyday life almost immediately AND the confidence to use it.  It is a fantastic way to show people how much they know and give confidence to learn and use Spanish creating a momentum.

“They made learning Spanish easy and fun in a very relaxed, comfortable atmosphere.  I would definitely recommend this course.  Even if you know some Spanish, this helps make it easier because of the less stress that no verb conjugations gives you.  This gives you more confidence in yourself to try and speak it more.

“I liked how simply the course was organized and the positive attitude about learning.  Thank you so much for helping me to learn Spanish!” Nadine Taylor
